Using elastic string for bracelets?

How do I make my knots stay together when using elastic string for bracelets?


I am stringing bead bracelets and the knots are coming apart very easily. I have tried putting a dot of jewelry making glue on the knot.

Is there something else I should be doing to make them stay knotted?

Elastic String

Did you ever figure out how to tie a knot with elastic string?

I am having the same problem.

Pull the beaded elastic in opposite directions on each side of the knot.

Tie the ends together in another overhand knot on top of the first knot.

Pull the beaded elastic apart.

Tie the ends in another knot on top of the first two knots.

Stretch the elastic.

Coat the knot with liquid jeweler's glue.

Cut away the excess elastic cord. Slide the knot inside a bracelet bead.
